Guess the taste

3.5 stars

This is a pretty simple game - a good time filler or if you're having a rotation of short games.

Get hold of a packet of those Jelly Beans with 100's of random flavours (ie watermelon, mango, coconut).  You'd be surprised how difficult it is to guess a flavor when you pop one in your mouth without looking at the colour.  So the game is to have kids guess what flavor and give them a point for each one the get right...

Could switch in some bad tasting jelly beans for some good laughs

We play this game with blindfolds and only bring out the players one by one. The last ingredient they taste is salt on a spoon. Then the blindfold is removed and they see one of their friend's toes covered in salt. Their faces are so funny when they really think they've licked a salty toe.

We did a game where various fast food value meals were blended in separate blenders (including the pop) and the students had to take a swig and guess which place it came from. Have a waste basket ready as it can get messy. Students had fun though because they consider themselves experts on fast food. It was amazingly difficult to tell which was what when it was blended together.
